Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery: Rubbish!
Through October 19, 2016

Explore the ways that artists use everyday materials to make beautiful works of art! Families can engage with Deborah Butterfield’s horse made out of sticks and mud; Clarence and Grace Woolsey’s bottle-cap wonder; Chakaia Booker’s sculpture made from used car and truck tires, and more! Then, create your own work of art as you design a quilt, rearrange a table with wood scraps, and compose a treasure box. You can even create your own unique treasure from trash at the Rubbish Bar!

The Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery is open during regular Museum Hours.

Upcoming Events

Kohl’s Art Generation Family Sundays: Día de los Muertos
Sunday, October 16, 2016

Celebrate loved ones and this cultural tradition as you take part in art activities that use the symbols and colors of Day of the Dead! Paint your face like a sugar skull, enjoy mariachi music and Mexican folkloric dance presented by local performers, and make an artful addition to a community ofrenda.

Kohl’s Art Generation Family Sundays: Tropical Holiday
Sunday, December 4, 2016

Surround yourself in the colors and patterns, flora and fauna, of nature. Inspired by the paintings in Nature and Opulence: The Art of Martin Johnson Heade, paint from live flowers and sculpt a hummingbird, while learning the names of plants and birds. Enjoy sounds of the season as you make creations that are perfect to keep—or to give as a holiday gift.
